So I'm out of town for work and this weekend I'm solo. While I have the budget to eat at fancy restaurants, I really am just excited about the fact that I have a car, which means easy access to fast food.
My workout plan is on hiatus until Mid-march FYI. It's tough to workout when you're traveling. I don't know how I used to do it in '05 and '06.
Anywho, I'm driving and I pass Taco Bell, McDonalds and some southern place I can't recall right now, thinking there's got to be better fast food than this. So I rolled up on a Wendy's. Pure excitement. When I lived in Chicago's suburbs I used to eat Wendy's at least once or twice a week, but there aren't any centrally located in my neighborhood in the city, so I've been missing out.
I pull up to the window and an elderly woman says Welcome to Burger King baby, can I take your order. Re-read that. Yes, I was at Wendy's and the woman said "Welcome to Burger King." Anyone who knows me knows the face I was making at this point. So I look around and it's definitely Wendy's. I say "Is this Burger King or is this Wendy's." So the old chick was like "Oh baby, I'm so sorry. This is Wendy's. How can I help you. The guy in the car in front of me had his window down and this dude looks back at my car and will not stop laughing. I couldn't hardy place my order because I was laughing so hard.
So I get up to the window to get my food and the lady must be taking orders from the back because it's a skinny dude with dreads and a plastic apron on at the window now. He opens the window and say "Baby, I'm so sorry about that it'll be $6.55." I mean he was like a straight up Ricky Smiley character and I was trying to figure out how he could impersonate and old woman with a raspy voice without cracking a smile.
Then it occurred to me. I forgot I was in Atlanta: Land of the free, home of the gays.
This was this dude's REAL voice. I swear, I should have a reality show. My life is hilarious and I couldn't make this stuff up if I tried.
